Get Yer COD: World At War Map Pack 2 Freebies Here!

Everyone in our studio audience will be taking one home today! And by "everyone," we mean "10 of you."

Map pack numero dos hits the tubes (read: Xbox Live Marketplace and PlayStation Network) for Call of Duty: World at War today. The four-map bundle will run you $10 (or the MS point equivalent thereof), but the fine folks at Activision would like 10 of you readers to play it for free. (At least, 10 of you that play the game on the Xbox 360.) "Two contests in one week?" you ask. "Are you guys crazy?" Yes, our collective sanity is questionable--but our commitment to providing you free stuff is rock-solid!

For your reference, here is some of the sordid business going on in this latest map pack.

  

So how can you walk away from this post with a shiny voucher for your free Xbox Live version of Map Pack 2? Simply talk amongst yourselves in the comments, and at 12pm Pacific Time tomorrow I'll randomly choose 10 of you from all the users who have replied at least once. If you need a topic to get started on, please first address the effects of escalating undead hegemony on geopolitical power dynamics in the post-war era.

NOTE: Yes, the more you post in this thread, the greater your chance of winning. Just keep it civil and tasteful, and above all, don't spam consecutive posts like a doofus. The mods will be watching this thread, so anyone who floods the comments will be dealt with in due and savage fashion. Carry on!

WINNERS!


Wow, almost 1,000 comments, huh? You guys really like free map packs. The 10 randomly selected winners are in, and here they are.


Thanks to everyone who participated!

Something about the bees, could the bees be behind the deadly Nazi Zombies?

This map pack should be amazing, I cant believe the amount of hours my friends and I played zombies.

I hope there arent any glitches on these maps!.. all that cheating really soured COD WAW for me for a while..

Yeah, it does seem a little soon I suppose. "
Modern warfare 2 is out soon though "
Yeah I just realized that. I guess it's a good move to put it out now. But maybe a better move would have been to just put one pack out? "
You might as well dump as many out as you can. All the fanboys will buy this instantly making it well worth the effort "
They'll probably try putting one more out before MW2.

I wonder what Treyarch will do for their next COD game.  It seems they've been focusing more and more on the Zombie aspect of the game, could we see them pull a shell shock 2 and make their next call of duty all world war 2 but completely zombiefied?

The best part about MW2 coming out soon is that COD4 dropped to 30 dollars. Mine's in the mail now ;) "
Good point "

I guess if you're one of the 8 people who doesn't already have CoD4.

sNow, this is a story all about how
My life got flipped-turned upside down
And I liked to take a minute
Just sit right there
I'll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel Air

In west Philadelphia born and raised
On the playground was where I spent most of my days
Chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool
And all shootin some b-ball outside of the school
When a couple of guys
Who were up to no good
Startin making trouble in my neighborhood
I got in one little fight and my mom got scared
She said 'You're movin' with your auntie and uncle in Bel Air'

I begged and pleaded with her day after day
But she packed my suite case and send me on my way
She gave me a kiss and then she gave me my ticket.
I put my walkman on and said, 'I might as well kick it'.

First class, yo this is bad
Drinking orange juice out of a champagne glass.
Is this what the people of Bel-Air Living like?
Hmmmmm this might be alright.

But wait I hear there're prissy, wine all that
Is Bel-Air the type of place they send this cool cat?
I don't think sow
I'll see when I get there
I hope they're prepared for the prince of Bel-Air

Well, the plane landed and when I came out
There was a dude who looked like a cop standing there with my name out
I ain't trying to get arrested
I just got here
I sprang with the quickness like lightening, disappeared

I whistled for a cab and when it came near
The license plate said fresh and it had dice in the mirror
If anything I can say this cab is rare
But I thought 'Now forget it' - 'Yo homes to Bel Air'

I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8
And I yelled to the cabbie 'Yo homes smell ya later'
I looked at my kingdom
I was finally there
To sit on my throne as the Prince of Bel Air


P.S CoD 5 is awesome

A way to not have to pay for the Nazi Zombie map, which is the only part of the DLC I'll be using?

Don't mind if I do.

@Pie:

I love pie. I also love buttholes in pockets. FULL of buttholes.

True story...I was booted from a CS:S server because some kid was saying "Ya know...don't mean to be an ass but you should change your name, someone might get offended."

Offended from BUTTHOLE? I hope so!

The maps look pretty solid. I'm especially excited for the new Nazi Zombie map. Looks like fun stuff. Hope I get to check 'em out pro bono, if you catch my drift  *wink *wink.
